Taking inspiration from Pasolini, Poesia in forma di rosa (Poetry in the Shape of a Rose) is the title of Artissima 17’s cultural programme, which revolves around visual artists who cross borders of other arts or disciplines such as architecture, design, literature, cinema, and dance. Artissima 17 will be investigating these migrations to find out what conditions might foster a greater integration of the arts.
